Lomography 400 is one of my favorite films. Have written about it before. 800 is amazing also offering similar performance with barely noticeable grain but is constantly in short supply evidently. It has long been out of stock on lomography’s site and my local camera shop has not fared better. At any price I would like this film. At around $15 for a 3 pack 35mm or 120 it is a straight-up bargain. Continue reading Another roll of @Lomography 400: Love this stuff. #heylomograhy
Had heard of T-MAX P3200. Heard a lot. Never used it before. Now it came back. Gave it a shot. Heard it had beautiful grain and was great for low light. That about covers it. Continue reading FIRST ROLLS: @KODAK T-MAX P3200
Not that long ago I tried slide film for the first time. Specifically Fujifilm Provia 100F in 35mm strength. And wow. Everything I heard and saw was true. Beautiful colors and amazing detail.

Those I did not have that I wanted were out of my budget range. Had a normal and a tele. Wide Hasselblad lenses are usually eye-watering-ly expensive. Made my peace with this. Minding my own business. Then Professor Lonnie Graham (check out his book here), who I interviewed for my first KEH blog post, sends me this:
And yes. Yes, I was. So the lens found me. I am powerless to fend off such an offer so the deal was made. Continue reading A Legend Purchased From A Legend: Hasselblad Distagon 50mm f/4
Recent roll through the Minolta Maxxum 7 using the Secret Handshake Lens (28-135mm) mostly. Kodak Portra 400 was the film. Continue reading Scanner Files: Secret Handshake Lens and Minolta Maxxum 7 w/ Kodak Portra 400
Another roll through the Contax T2. This time w/ Kodak Portra 200. Continue reading Scanner Files: Contax T2 w/ Kodak Gold 200
Ok, not a first roll. Have shot it plenty, but I am on a roll today and I love this stuff.
I suspect many will have tried this film so I’ll make this quick. Continue reading First Rolls: Fuji Acros 100
